Link's next adventure is already in development
Surprising no one, Skyward Sword was a huge success and the next big Zelda game is already underway. The hazy confirmation comes from the Hyrule Historia book via a quote from series producer Eiji Aonuma.
“The voices of those who’ve played it [Skyward Sword] from around the world reach us. We hear their admiration, comments and their criticism too. All those voices become energy for the next voyage. Well, to tell the truth, we’ve already set sail in a new voyage.”
Though Eiji Aonuma’s cryptic statement could mean just about anything (especially since it’s a translation) and it’s generally a bit of a faux pas to bring something like this up on a gaming site as news, I’m taking this opportunity to make a prediction. When Zelda comes to the WiiU, it won’t be anything like the demo video shown at last year’s E3. Why am I so sure of this? Well…
Remember that little video? Remember all the excitement that rang out from the gaming community after it was shown? Remember the pure, steamy Internet rage gamers everywhere felt when they saw the first shots of Wind Waker that was forgotten the moment everyone got to play it? I would bet money that history is going to repeat itself again with the next Zelda game. Everyone will gnash their teeth when the first screenshots look nothing like the HD WiiU demo, but the fickle beast that is the Internet will calm down and love it anyway when it comes out.
Just. You. Wait.
